Book of Saints – Ferreolus and Ferrutio


(Saints) Martyrs (June 16) (3rd century) Saint Ferreolus (probably a Bishop) and Saint Ferrutio, a deacon, are said to have been brothers, and were natives of Asia Minor. They were sent by Saint Irenseus of Lyons to evangelise the country round Besan^on at the same time as he despatched Saints Felix, Fortunatus and Aquileius on a similar mission to Vienne. Their work was crowned with like success, and they too came to the same glorious end — a cruel death at the hands of the heathen persecutors (A.D. 212, about).
